Founded in 2010, Seed Space is a lab for site-specific installation, sculpture, video, sound and performance-based art in Nashville, Tennessee. We support our program in three specific ways. We bring in nationally recognized art critics to write our exhibition essays. We host regularly scheduled public talks. We facilitate meetings among artists, critics and curators. Through these means we aim to foster an exchange between a growing network of local and national artistic communities, which we believe is one of the best ways to support the careers of emerging artists.

La Neomudejar es un centro de artes de vanguardia y residencia artística. Primamos la creación por encima de los discursos y las teorías imperantes en los circuitos actuales del arte. El centro de artes de vanguardia entronca con la base primigenia de las teorías naturales de contraposición al arte establecido. Esta arquitectura creativa parte de la identificación de las carencias del colectivo artistico y opta por una respuesta basada en la ejecución por encima de la nube del discurso academicista imperante. La Neomudejar tiene como prioridad favorecer, impulsar y dar visibilidad al creador emergente.
El objetivo es asentar un espacio internacional de referencia, para creadores multidisciplinares con carácter de continuidad para los nuevos códigos y lenguajes que profundicen en la experimentacion. Videoarte, instalaciones, performes, street art, parkour, robótica, translación de cuerpos, etc… son algunas de las disciplinas que La Neomudejar pretende acompañar. Especial atención se da a formatos tecnológicos de nueva generación así como a los desechados, que merecen una revision al amparo de un reciclado consciente y creativo en pugna con la inmediatez y caducidad de las sociedades de consumo actual como por ejemplo el super8.
Para albergar este proyecto se hizo un trabajo de investigación para encontrar el inmueble adecuado a la singularidad de la propia propuesta. Tras más de un año de trabajo y gracias a la colaboración de Adif que apoya el proyecto de forma continuada dentro de su programa de Responsabilidad Social y Sostenibilidad, se firma un contrato de alquiler en condiciones especiales para el desarrollo de recuperación del espacio como el Centro de Artes de Vanguardia y Residencia Artística Internacional.
La recuperación del espacio adquiere una dimensión diferente al tomar la arquitectura y decadencia del edificio como punto de inflexión para reflexionar sobre los procesos de creación y rehabilitacion. Poner en valor estos conceptos es parte y todo del concepto de “La Neomudejar”. El marcado carácter como espacio de trabajo viene derivado se uso original ya que albergó durante decadas los talleres de formación de Renfe. Los lucernarios, el tejado en sierra, los amplios espacios, las antiguas calderas, la fragua, el mobiliario de carpintería, etc… terminan por reforzar este concepto.

The cultural program recipes. How-to, is an example of research, innovation and contemporary art. Through cultural activities, meetings, lectures, debates and workshops we approach the reality of interdisciplinary artistic production. Our goal is to experiment in art, learning and sharing knowledge through copy left recipes proposed by specialists. A wink to the world of gastronomy from culture and art.
cultural recipes collaborates with cultural operators from Europe, South America, Spain and the Basque Country to create a project, as a tutorial to survive in the world of culture and creation.
Creativity and Uniqueness
This project counts not only with interdisciplinary proposals but also propose processes and work in the margins of disciplines so that by their expressions, the not warned spectator and participant will not know the nature of the fields that are assigned, often unexplored. These creative works are out of conventional patterns of disciplines so that they display unique attitudes antithetical to the canons, for example, dance where immobility highlights, or gastronomic workshops where the decisions are left to robotic technology.
Innovative capacity
The cultural recipes program is an example of research, innovation and contemporary art. The philosophy of the program is characterized by the search for works that feature innovative concerns both its original approach and content and the process and the ways in which it intends to translate these ideas into a final product.
The proposals combine visual arts, film, dance, performance and music with gastronomy, robotic applications software, artificial intelligence, thinking about cultural management and social science.
